My Updated 3.14 Packages For Gnome Extensions

Update: 11th April, 2015

I've updated the extensions below to be compatible with GNOME 3.16 so if you are a 3.16 user go to the GNOME 3.16 Updates Package blog post to download those.


GNOME, desktop environment project, released their latest version recently, about a month ago, and I waited for the packages to become stable in Arch Linux before I updated and that happened today. I updated earlier today and found that many of my installed extensions were no longer working which was unfortunate but not a deal breaker for me because most of the time extensions just need metadata updates which are fairly trivial. I've made some updates to the extensions I use and I thought since they haven't been updated on the official pages yet that I would make the updates and release them publicly if anyone wanted to use them.



1. These updated packages are compatible with the official packages so when the official packages update these will be overwritten and will smoothly transition into the official packages.

2. These updated packages will NOT overwrite your settings so you will not have to start over, they are compatible with existing settings.


Update 2015-04-16: 2 more extensions added, Show Desktop from Overview & Window Options.


Extensions Updated: 11


I made these for myself but if there are any extensions that you'd like updated to 3.14 then just post below in the comments and I'll do what I can. If the extensions are already compatible with 3.14 and just need updating to be installable then I will do as many as possible but if the extensions are just broken with 3.14 then that will need to be fixed by the original developer.


How To Install:

The simplest way to install a GNOME Extension, outside of the site, is to use the GNOME Tweak Tool. This tool should be included in your distro's official repos but if you have any trouble with installing it just comment down below. I've made the rest of the tutorial in a image gallery style so here it is.
